got from rick santorum, remember him, was a political overture wrapped around the idea of buying made in the usa christmas presents. yeah, rick santorum, it wasn't about evil obama care or how horrible it is that gay people want to get married or some imagined war on religion or any of the others rick santorum skm shtick, it was all about buying made in the usa stuff. i am thankful to report that the republican governor of iowa, terry branstad, is suggesting that the iowa republican party should get rid of its straw poll. not suggesting getting rid of the iowa caucuses, just the straw poll. which is not a real poll or a real election of any kind, just a republican party fund-raiser, where republican candidates bribe people and bus in people from all over the state for a big fake contest that the national media threat as a real thing. the iowa straw poll means nothing. it is a hoax that the republican party of iowa perpetrates on the country and the candidates every year, and the media goes along with it, every year, even though we all know that's true. but now the republican governor
the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president did a good job. but we saw this once before. remember when charlie crist, the former governor of florida, ph
has barely settled from the president election. but are rick santorum, jeb bush among others already planning for 2016? and scandal bankrupts a california city. officials allegedly scam millions and millions of dollars from taxpayers. one former police chief now wants a lot more. ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. aww, not the mall. well, i'll do the shopping... if you do the shipping. shipping's a hassle. i'll go to the mall. hey. hi. y'know, holiday shipping's easy with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits, it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. yeah, i know. oh, you're good. [ laughing ] good luck! [ male announcer ] priority mail flat rate boxes. online pricing starts at $5.15. only from the postal service. in that time there've been some good days. and some di
in the republican primary, mitt romney, rick santorum, michele bachmann et cetera those policies are not going to win over hispanics. they're not going to win over asian americans. >> jennifer: you are not going to see i predict a super pac that is a pro-choice republican super pac though, right? that's an issue they won't touch. >> i believe that abortion is an issue that they will not touch. they -- they saw what happens when you anger women voters in this country independents, republicans and democrats but abortion i think -- the republican party is not there yet. i don't know if they will ever get there. >> jennifer: well instead of republican moderates, shouldn't we just issue democratic cards to the membership, cards to the democratic party? i don't see how they're going to do it. you have mayor bloomberg's super pac on gun control. do you think he and that pac have enough clout to push president obama to come out with a national gun policy much less their own republicans? >> the super pac alone mayor bloomberg's in this
, former communications director for rick santor santorum's presidential campaign. karen, start with you, the full-court press of obama voters ramping up to fiscal cliff talks, out with a new report today showing the impact, losing middle class tax cuts and even the thought of it could have on holiday shopping and spending. combine that with the new poll showing the majority of americans, 45%, would blame the gop and congress and not the president if these fiscal cliff talks fail. are we seeing a white house not willing to lose this pr war no matter the outcome of the talks? >> i think you're seeing a gop that has yet to accept the election results, sort of negotiating with themselves about what they will and won't accept without acknowledging the polls you just cited and the other thing is a strong majority actually also wants a deal. they want a compromise, a balanced compromise. as the republicans are negotiating with themselves over here, the administration and the rest of america is kind of in another place and i think the administration rightly so and remember this was an issue whe
friess or whatever his name is, helping rick santorum. santorum would have been out of their along time before. kept the process going longer and a prolonged the period of time where romney had to move to the right in order to nail down the nomination and made it more difficult, more awkward for him to tack back towards the center to win the general election. and if you were going to say to issues, and one of them probably may not be fair. the auto bailout, i am not sure how much of that was political of conservatives just not liking governmental interference or how much of it was you know a harvard is the school, a harvard law school guy who thought bankruptcy, getting and all the car company out of their contract with the union, i mean where technically actually really thought that would have been a better route in a long-term bet for the auto companies, it may not have been political but that's the weaker of the two. and then there was immigration. you can't tell me that mitt romney from three or four years ago would have had any intention to go and strike as he did on immigration an
, and contributor and former communications direct or to senator rick santorum, robert trainham. let's talk twinkies. just kidding. i just have that on my mind. i want to talk about the party, beth, and you spent a long time before coming to washington in florida. let's talk about marco rubio's role. we'll talk about bobby jindal but marco rubio just happened to go to iowa. what a great guy. this is someone who has national aspirations clearly. from your close read on him, is he someone who can make that leap? he went from the state legislature to the u.s. senate seamlessly. going from senate to presidential candidate is another. does he have it in him? >> if you watch marco rubio speak, not necessarily the speech in iowa -- >> this is what you would expect a republican to say. >> but the convention speech where he's giving it the full treatment, i mean, there are very few politicians that can do what he can do which is make an audience feel something. he can really connect. he's really everything that mitt romney was not able to do. >> i totally agree and i think you wind up in some ways fight the
with the gop going forward? >> i think paul ryan and rick santorum and a number of other candidates who certainly are going to be viable players going forward are also names to watch. but i think that the party standard bearer will likely be somebody who's able to reach a broad coalition going forward. more than just conservatives. and the republican base. whoever it is has to reach a lot more folks. >> yeah. so margie, chris christie, always being talked about for this. does his embrace of the president during hurricane sandy, do you think that hurts or helps him, in tells of both getting a nomination, and then being elected? because that can be two different things. >> i'm a new jersey native. and my stepfather has the same sort of new jersey attitude that chris christie has. i think that attitude, sometimes can be hurtful for chris christie in the case of hurricane sandy, it was really helpful to show he was going to say it like it is. which is, i'm here to help the people in new jersey, rather than play politics. i don't think it cost mitt romney the election at all. i think it's fo
be considering a presidential bid. why not? something jeb bush did not rule out. rick santorum is keeping all options open. the former candidate telling "the weekly standard" he's, quote, open to another presidential bid. republicans have a long-standing tradition of rewarding the second-place finisher. there are no secrets about chris christie's plan for 2013. he announced yesterday that he will definitely seek a second term. his reasons, hurricane sandy. christie says he has a job to finish. >>> if the election were held today, he would almost definitely win because according to a brand new quinnipiac poll, 72% approve of the job he is doing including 52% of democrats. a special election to replace congressman jesse jackson jr. set for march 19th. the primary election set for february 26th. jackson resigned last week citing his health and a federal investigation into campaign spending. several candidateses have tossed their hats into the ring. his wife has been mentioned as a possible replacement although she could face an investigation as his campaign manager. >> jill kelley will soon lose
have no idea how any other american useles birth control with the acception of rick santorum. and i don't know why he wants to talk about it or why he thinks it's a national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. the prolife position is a serious moral position and i think the fact that on this issue the country is closely divided and there is no toveed suggest that being prolife is a disqualifier to being elected president of the united states. but surely we must understand the difference that being prolife doesn't default you into anti-contraception and women in this country particularly young women don't want to here contraception leckchures from white over 50,. we are the limited government party. and we see too often from the leadership in washington a version of big government conservatism where the government is peering through the window into matters of sexual orientation, into life style choices and issues like continue tra acception. so there is an intellectle disdense when people are talking about tyranny and we stand on the precipic
ago. if not for foster freeze, rick santorum would have been out of there. romney had to move to the right to nail down the nomination. it made it more difficult, more awkward for him to go back toward the center to win a general election. if you are going to say two issues -- one of them might not be fair. the automobile bailout, i do not know how much of that was political and conservatives not liking government interference and how much of it was a harvard business school, harvard law school thinking that that would have been a better long-term route for the auto companies that may not have been political, that you them go bankrupt. the other thing is the politicization. you cannot tell me that the mitt romney from 3 or four years ago would have had any intention to go as strident as you did on immigration and how badly that hurt him when you look at how he performed. one percentage point more of the vote this time than in 2008 was made up of -- he ended up getting 71.27. you look at that and say, wow. that was an enormous mistake. the second thing that seems to me is that
point. joining me is retired admiral and the national communications director for rick santorum's campaign. you heard from senator feinstein. even if it wasn't the white house, which made those changes, it came from high enough up the campaign of demand it came to susan rice's desk. why does that change anything? >> i think the congress is right. it should look in to what occurred with benghazi. i think you can in the navy i learn learned inspect what you suspect. with regard to the piece of information there were terrorists involved in this attack i think we should find out. the accountability to the public is needed. the most important issue is what the accountability review board set up by mrs. clinton is trying to find out i on the ambassador? why was the security not provided that was can requested for? four men died. this is what this is about. unfortunately too many walk washington turn it in to politics but that's what we have to get to the bottom of so we don't lose more men and women overseas. >> what about the republicans. do you think they have been misguided in thei
with rick santorum for supremacy in that realm. rand paul, perhaps. the tea party was found by the ron and rand paul real conservatives, the guys who were disgusted at how george w. bush spent money before it devolved into people blaming obama for what bush did. then you'll have the moderates. i think jeb bush will be the leader in. guy who will say i'm the electable moderate. we tried going to the right wing way. ronald reagan wouldn't fit in with them. chris christie of course will be a part of that camp. >> immigration is going to be a real good test case. you'll see this divide between that brand of moderate republicans saying that immigration is an economic issue. that we need to bring in people with the skills that america needs to power the economy and on the other side, folks like steve king and michele bachmann who use those emotional appeals of they'll take your jobs, they're from another country and so on and so forth. how that plays out will be key to what the party becomes. >> john: you can't wi
's interesting. >>> rick santorum dropping hints he may be thinking about another run for the white house. the former senator and presidential candidate told piers morgan he's keeping all of his options open. >> i'm open to that possibility, but i -- we're a long way -- i'm focused right now on, on trying to -- to stay involved with the fray and make sure that we do the right thing up on capitol hill right now, and also, that this debate in the republican party about what the future of the party and where we're going to go that we're going to be very active and engaged to make sure we stick to america's founding principles. >> former house speaker newt gingrich hasn't ruled out another bid for the presidency either. he said he'd consider running in 2016 if the gop makes big changes. >>> ahead on "starting point" she denied the drug cartels and she paid for it with her life. now one mayor's courage is being celebrated in mexico. her story next in a live report. t the world's biggest events in 3d, or live to your seat high above the atlantic ocean. it's what drives us to create eco-friendly
. >>> who is in, who is out? former senator rick santorum is not counting himself out for the run for president. >> we're a long way. i'm focused now on trying to stay involve in the fray and do the right thing on capitol hill and also that this debate in the republican party about what future of the part and where we're going to go, that we're going to be active and engaged and stick to american's founding principles. >> it's not a yes and it's not a no. >>> one candidate running again, governor chris christie filled out paperwork, gearing up to campaign for a second terp as governor. >> the public needs to know that i'm in this for the long haul. that the person who has helped to lead them through the initial crisis wants to be here to lead them through rebuilding and restoration of our state. it would be wrong for me to leave now. i don't want to leave now. we have a job to do. >> polls out in the past 24 ors show christie's approval rating is skyrocketing thanks to his response to superstorm sandy. >>> three top cabinet spots up for grabs. who is in, who is out? pi bill clinto
of the republican party is martinez and not new gingrich and rick santorum. i have a sneaking suspicion i think you might as well that four or eight years from now we are going to be talking about the great inroads that a republican presidential candidate has made with latinos in the electorate because i don't see anyplace for republicans to go but up. they have to adapt in order to be competitive this year. just looking at someone like chris christi down the road, republicans are going to kind of face a fork in the road in the future presidential nomination contest between someone who is able to bridge that gap between partisan appeal on the tea party right and independent voters or someone who is going to be stuck in that base and as the republican coalition continue to contract i think it is only going to be more difficult for someone to overcome that divided to win a nomination and be able to put it to a general election. there are people in the republican party who plausibly can win both the primary general election. >> will turn to the microphone where we will have a microphone so you can ide
in iowa who handed the iowa caucuses to rick santorum. folks in south carolina to get a primary to newt gingrich. >> i don't mean it at all -- [inaudible] not general elections. >> beyond that though, i feel like the last couple, ever since george w. bush's second term there's been an antiestablishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed, angry at the bush administration. they want small government conservatism. so you get more and more, for lack of a better term, tea party ties but i think everybody lumps too many people into the tea party, sort of coulter and. but you get these types who are determined to come here and do something against leadership. i sat down with john boehner on sunday on a bus going come in ohio, rural ohio. like to sit there and watch the road as you go over bonds and whatnot. he likes the fact a lot of sirens around. but he mentioned that he liked the traffic, if you will. he mentioned this to me. i said, you know, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? and given the freshman. he said
